Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris BD Always a joy to stay
The staff are friendly, helpful, efficient and speak good English.
The hotel is clean. The décor up to date and the buffet breakfast fantastic. The beds very comfortable and the rooms surprisingly quiet being so close to the railway station.
Although there's not much to see close to the hotel, Amsterdam central is only 10 to 15 minutes by train. Schiphol is on the same line and around 20 minutes away.
The hotel has a secure luggage room in which you can leave luggage on checking out to collect later.
The last time I stayed the staff allowed me to leave luggage on checking out; attend a business meeting; return to put my business bag in the luggage room and go sightseeing in Amsterdam before returning to collect it all on my way to the airport.
Incidentally, as Sloterdijk station is on the main line between Amsterdam Centraal and Schiphol a ticket from Amsterdam Centraal allows you to get off at Sloterdijk to collect your luggage from the hotel at no extra cost.
My only annoyance was that the main entrance door didn't always open automatically when it was raining hard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaveRon A new Amsterdam
Amsterdam is a wonderful city, but over many years I have found the hotels to be cramped, expensive, and with miserable hosts. This hotel is a joy. Smiling staff, good sized rooms, and decent breakfasts set up the days with fantastic transport links. Buy a local transport ticket at the front desk 1/2/3 days 7.5/12/16 euros. Tram 12 across town, bus 48 to the main station in 20 minutes, metros to the city borders. Trains are extra, but unnecessary. Good BBC 1 and 2 reception. Nice bar area. Lifts straight from transport to rooms. Area a bit bland, but the frequent transport compensates. Don't book here - you'll push up the prices!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bob235 Staff were fantastic
I would never usually write a review but felt I should say how great the staff were. Very friendly and helpful - nothing too much trouble. Compared to other Holiday Inn Expresses I have stayed in I thought the breakfast was excellent. If you have stayed in a Holiday Inn Express before, you know the choice is relatively limited, however it was all fresh & very tasty. My son (8 yrs old) absolutely loved it. Felt this hotel is a real credit to the chain.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great hotel...let down by the beds
I've stayed here a couple of times recently and was expecting too be there most weeks for a couple of months.
This is a great hotel in a poor location (but with good public transport). It's VERY clean and i like the overall decoration.
BUT, the beds are really not good. Hard, lumpy and the hotel isn't even that old.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Other minor gripes .... the Internet access isn't very fast, but it is free. Breakfast is ok (and free) but the selection isn't great (after a couple of weeks), but they really need a better coffee machine. Rooms can be a bit noisy (from the station) but the rooms away from the station are reasonable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by reiziger2014 clean and comfortable room
very friendly welcome at the reception desk and at breakfast.
Room was clean and comfortable. Coffee and tea making facilities in the room.
Public transport to Amsterdam centre: frequency trains good. After 5 minutes destination Amsterdam Central Station is reached!
Also connection by bus and tramway.
Overall we had a good stay at this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by yossis great service but low quality mattresses
Beyond its very convenient location with respect to the airport, as the title declares the service is good and professional as the global value of the hotel. Yet I should indicate that the quality of the mattresses is inadequate to the above.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vandi04 Good - as I expected
You get the expectable quality like Holiday Inn Expresses - I like these kind of hotels all over Europe. The room is good and clean, the breakfast is good, the location is excellent - everything is there: bus, tram, metro and train. But the room isn't noisy. The staff coluld be a little bit friendly, but nothing else negative. I recommend this hotel absolutely.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sigrungudm Perfect for city trips in Amsterdam
We really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn in Sloterdijk. It is situated next to the trainstation, which you don't hear, by the way. The room and bathroom are as they should be and you can even make your own tea or coffee in your own room, when you wish to. The breakfast was very nice (except perhaps of the odor of the burned bread that accidentily happened to burn when we were feching our breakfast). It had all you could wish for and was fresh and the restaurant was comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpfull.
What can I say, except that we will return!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lionell Always a pleasant stay
We have been here 3 times now and on every occasion the staff has been really friendly and helpful. To give an example, on our last stay we knew there was gonna be maintenance on the railroads back to Antwerp. Immediately one of the staff members at reception look up the necessary travel info for us on the web and we were on our way without any worries.
Only downside I can find, is that they don't have bacon & eggs for breakfast, but that no reason not to stay here. We find the room rates to be better priced then staying in the city center. And the only thing you need to do is hop on the train for a couple of minutes and you're downtown.
Always a pleasure returning to this hotel!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fabian2404 Nice Hotel with great rooms but very poor breakfast
The Hotel and the Service was pretty good. The room are big enough for two People. The bath is ver new and absolut modern. The Hotel is nearly the bus Station to the central of Amsterdam. But the breakfast was absolotely poor. Every morning the same to eat. Without fruit salat, scrambled eggs, sausages and more. The only one was bread roll with jelly and a Little selection of cheese and cutting pork sausages.
If you stay longer than two days then choose another Hotel with better breakfast!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aqui_y totally great
I had for one night in a single room. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Room is clean and comfortable with small mini bar. Prize and Service is very good. Especially, I could take the service of baggage room after checking out. Then I could enjoy a short sightseeing in Amsteldam central befor I went to the airport.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dado1981 Great position and service!
If you want to get to Amsterdam centre in a bunch of mins, save €€€ of taxies and be at the Schipol in time... that's the choice you must take!
The hotel is a 3 star, probably because of the lack of a wardrobe and a minibar in the bedrooms, but the rooms are clean & comfortable and the reception is efficient & kind (besides, the bar is next to it and opened until late night!).
Extremely suggest, optimum ratio value/price, i'll come back there for sure!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by scotty29 not for work
was there on business, so was in bed early, far to much noise, from local traffic, ie buses and train station,
totally disappointed never got a good sleep for 4 nights, tried to tell staff who only laughed, as they never understood my english,
disgusted i paid for this trip out of my own pocket as i brought my partner on a business trip.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pana bed not comfortable, lack of space to put clothes, good service, very clean
The hotel is very clean, good breakfast, but not high quality. The staff was very helpful. Good position near train, tram and bus (but nothing to visit around). Good if you come for working reasons in this area. Good idea the boiler with cups and tea bags or coffee in the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Switzy A Secret Location
Apart from the well-known positive aspects of this hotel (such as cleanliness, quality, and comfort), there is an additional plus, which is the location.
Location is for most of the people a matter of 'how far' a place is from the center and other attractions, but the question should be 'how long' it takes to get there. People might think the place is a bit far (on the map), but if you think how a 4-minute direct train will drop you in the heart of Amsterdam, together with the value of this hotel, there could never be a better bargain.
This place would be my definite place to stay again and again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rudie6957 great location and friendly staff
This is the seventh time since the opening I am staying at this location.
6 trains an hour from Schiphol airport to the hotel what is 100 m from the train station and the same amount of trains t the City center.
New and comfortable hotel.
Hard to reach with luggage since there are stairs between the hotel and the station access.
good breakfast and well organized!

The room was clean, spacious & comfortable, although I would have liked more drawer space. Would have liked more coffee, tea & milk left in room. Only 10 minutes away from Central Station. Staff were helpful and good breakfast. Would not hesitate to recommend hotel to other people.
